Bio: James Clarkson

James Clarkson is the earliest ancestor of our Clarkson line that can be identified with confidence. We do not have the name of his wife, or all of his children. But, he was the father of Peter Clarkson who was born about 1660 at Barnacar, Garstang, Lancashire, England. James Clarkson died in 1684 and a probate action was taken 6 November 1684. The administrators were named as Peter Clarkson of Barniker (signed his name) and John Walker of Barniker (X).
